A wonderful Japanese fairytale about a "Tanuki" animal who can change himself into a teakettle. A Tanuki is an actual creature who lives only in Japan. And the Japanese believe that they are very magical. In this tale, the Tanuki comes to the aid of a kind family, and helps them realize their dreams as he avoids being mistaken for a teapot, and almost set upon the fire. Watch as the Tanuki uses his magic to confound a thief, dance upon a high wire in the air, and in the end find his own happiness on his own terms. One of Japan's most beloved stories, a classic tale filled with authentic Japanese music and culture.
